Parent Mentor

Hello Parents,

My name is Amanda Locke and I am the parent of an Evans County School graduate and I have 2 children who attend Evans County Schools. I am a parent of a child with an IEP which is what brought me to the work of the Georgia Parent Mentor Partnership. The Georgia Parent Mentor Partnership is parents and professionals working together to improve outcomes for students with disabilities by enhancing communication and collaboration between families, educators and the community. I have served as Parent Mentor in Evans County for more than 10 years. I am honored to assist parents as they support their children. I have worked with parents in many ways including to prepare for IEP meetings, to identify and apply for resources, and to prepare for life after graduation.

I look forward to working with you!
